Seven firms protested certain specifications under a Navy solicitation for ship repairs, contending that the specifications were defective and imposed undue risk on bidders. GAO held that the solicitation: (1) reasonably required bidders to bid a fixed labor rate for an unspecified quantity of additional repair work; (2) was consistent with the Federal Acquisition Regulation's provisions regarding changed work; (3) did not mandate a fixed profit limit for additional work; (4) did not conflict with a standard Navy repair agreement regarding access to the repaired vessel; and (5) did not improperly define how bidders should classify costs for accounting purposes. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
